The staff was lovely and so was the calm and mellow atmosphere. Unfortunately, the portions were quite small, reasonably tasty and way over priced. If you're looking for a good Italian place that's not it.

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Mel & Michele. It's a small restaurant, with a very quaint and romantic feel - white tablecloths, etc, which is rare in this city. The food was interesting and the service was very good. We took advantage of the bottomless wine which turned out to be quite cost effective. It's... More

We stumbled in her on Shabbat after landing in Tel Aviv from the US. We were exhausted and hungry. I don't remember what we ate except we were pleased and we enjoyed our first taste of Israeli wine. The staff was absolutely delightful!

Since Mel and Michelle have changed Chef's a couple of years ago, this restaurant has raised the bar for fine dining. The homemade bread was a delicious way to start the meal- soft and crispy with a hint of garlic and salt. First course of Sauteed Artichokes on a bed of creamy polenta with a sprinkling of bread crumbs and... More

We have been going to Mel & Michelle every year for our wedding anniversary. The Polante starter and Gnocchi dish are excellent. Last time I took the entrecote steak and liked it very much. The chocolate cake dessert was sweet and tasty. Excellent place for a date or a romantic evening.
